Along with Rod's attention to all of your guided needs (including food and accommodations), Rod's skills and knowledge of the local angling techniques and locations are sure to provide you with the Trip of a Lifetime! Rod truly believes the 4 F's: Family, friends, fishing and fun (not always in that order, claims wife Danena)! Whether it is tempting the great White Sturgeon of the Fraser Valley, or hiking small streams in pursuit of the illusive Steelhead... join Rod for an unforgettable Fraser Valley adventure!
Brandon Wootton - Assistant Guide
Brandon has grown up in Chilliwack for 19 of his 21 years. He started out fishing for Trout in small ponds, followed by Salmon fishing in both the Fraser and Chilliwack River. Steelhead and Salmon took up most of his time! Brandon volunteers countless hours on the Chilliwack/ Vedder River collecting broodstock for their Steelhead program. He is very passionate about fishing, and enjoys teaching and learning anything and everything when it comes to fishing! Sturgeon fishing is another species of Brandon's fishing obsession! He enjoys the excitement and the rush experienced by everyone on board when his clients encounter their mammoth catch- the historic White Sturgeon! A trip with Brandon is memorable, exciting, and will surely never be forgotten!
